Arty Girlz weekly challenge #72 ~ FLOWERS

The challenge this week on Arty Girlz is Flowers


As usual the challenge is open into interpretation and you can choose your own format be it a card, layout, altered art,mixed mediad it up to you


A WORK IN PROGRESS

This is mine its a work in progress i started this about 2 weeks ago, I have never actually painted an image before i usually cut them out and glue them where i want them LOL so its a big thing for me to have actually painted it all,


I used molding paste for the texture and acrylic paint .. i have the basic structure down now i want to start adding some different elements to it like tissue paper tetro seal and also get the oil pastel's out and maybe some more layers ? I'm not sure where I'm actually going with it so I'm hoping it will get finished eventually.


some close ups

I like it, Crissi! I like all the textures in it. You could have fooled me that you hadn't painted like that before. :) Isn't experimenting and trying new art techniques fun?
